About this Event
MentHerShip is back, baby! After a 4 year Covid hiatus, full of social distancing, toilet paper stockpiling and work-from-couch-ing, our team is thrilled to be reviving an event so near and dear to our hearts.
MentHerShip was born in 2018 from a desire to create a safe space for women to come together and talk about matters, of both life and work, free of barriers, boundaries, or fear. All proceeds from MentHerShip V.8 will go towards the , in Vancouver, who have been providing a safe space, practical support, basic necessities, and hot, nutritious meals for women and children since 1978 (more details below).
For our first in-person event back, we’re—ever so appropriately—focusing on the topic of realignment. It’s something that’s been top of mind for our team lately, especially as we’ve emerged from the depths of the pandemic and are re-entering the world with the worst days of Covid in our rearview mirrors.
However, even as life moves forward post-pandemic, we haven’t forgotten to look back along the way. If those Covid years taught us anything, it’s that life truly is too short and too precious to waste on anything that doesn’t set your soul on fire and feel truly and completely authentic to you. Finding what makes you happy and brings you genuine joy, even if it means blowing up your current life as you know it, is paramount; a life you love is worth fighting for.
We’ve all heard it before; today is never too late to be brand new (thank you, Taylor Swift). But how do we achieve that when we’ve been on a carved path for so long, investing so much of our time, energy, and identity into that trajectory? How do we boldly push forward into uncharted waters when we’re scared of sinking? How do we simply start over in search of realignment?
ENTER: MENTHERSHIP V.8
We’ll be embarking on this discussion with the help of three incredible women; Amanda Kao of The Bad Academy, Sylvia Tennant of Zaleska Jewelry, and Reece Tomlinson of Saône Capital.
We’re so excited to dive into deep conversations (and maybe a bottle of wine or two… or three) with these incredible women, and we hope you are too.
